Message From The Chairman Himfed.

Cooperative Movement which was pioneered in Himachal Pradesh in the year 1904, now needs to be made into a public movement, so that agricultural/ horticultural inputs are available at the doorsteps of the farmers. Youth are made more self reliant through self employment opportunities and we have to work towards promoting small scale industries through cooperatives societies.
Welcome to the website of The Himachal Pradesh Cooperative Marketing and Consumers Federation Ltd. (Himfed). Himfed provides multifarious services to the people of the state such as distribution of fertilizers, other agricultural/ horticultural inputs, tools and implements, consumer goods and running of PDS shops and petrol pumps. This site will provide the required information about Himfed to all the stakeholders.
